I just bought the 70D and when I look through the VF the image is quite dark. Is there a setting that I should know about? (The image in Live View is fine).

Odd, it would only be dark when the battery is out. The 7D is the same way.

Well, I did try the DoF button, but as soon as I remove my finger from it, the image should be clear in the VF, no?

Yes, I would think so. What lens are you using? Maybe the aperture blades are sticking in the closed position. Look in the front of the lens to see if you can see the aperture stuck stopped down.

I'm using the 18-135 STM. I don't see anything wrong concerning the lens/blades.

OK, good luck.

Thanks. I'll let you know what was the problem (or what I was doing wrong!).
